Maine Masque Shares ‘Crimes of the Heart’
The Maine Masque will perform Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Crimes of the Heart,” at 7:30 p.m. April 9-12 and at 2 p.m. April 13, in Hauck Auditorium at the University of Maine.
Third-year theatre and history major Nellie Kelly will direct the tragic comedy set in 1974 in a small Mississippi town. “Crimes of the Heart” shares the stories of three Magrath sisters: the oldest is 30 and unmarried; the middle sibling has a failed career; and the youngest shot her husband.
The Maine Masque is an independent group under the jurisdiction of UMaine Student Government. It works with the School of Performing Arts to support theater activities.
Admission is $10, or free with a student MaineCard. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online. To request disability accommodations, call 207.581.1781.
